Hey Nikki,

We'll be the stealth DIS family not in DISwear! I'm sure lots of folks will be decked out in their DIS finest, though!

Stealth packing continues - and I had my car interior cleaned today. Aaaahhh, so nice! Almost don't want to let the family into it. Pedi tomorrow at lunchtime. So close!

XO

Getting messages on the ship

For those that know me on Facebook, my job situation has been turned completely in a great ball of muck, and it really couldn't have been a worse time...I'd love to give more details, but I can't yet.

If someone needs to get in touch with me, at least get a message to me, how might they be able to do so? I have this number: 1-888-322-8732, but I'm not 100% sure what that does.

I remember that the internet services is pretty expensive.

I understand that faxing services are available, but they are also expensive.

I'm just wondering what my options are....cheaper is better at this point

Well, it's been 2 1/2 hours, and I am still not entirely packed. Plus, the largest suitcase I own doesn't fit all of my stuff. Oy. It's time for a chat break. Podcast chat is tonight!

Brian is wearing his DisUnplugged Polo shirt. I'm wearing a Mickey sailing shirt that I got at the Disney Store!

I think the only thing that needs to be done is hairbrushes and the laptop to be packed. I had to pack early! I am working most of the day tomorrow including the evening and then off and on all day on Friday! We leave here at 6pm on Saturday evening after our girls' dance recital which runs from about 12-3:30ish! We will come home and just shower the kids and wait for the limo! Our flight is at 9 and we land in Orlando at midnight! Staying at the Hyatt at the airport and getting picked up at 10 am by FL Tours to be taken to the port! Stressed over the short time we have to get there but the weather looks to be cooperating, or at least we think! KNOCK ON WOOD!!!!!

See you all on Sunday on the DREAM!!!!!

I believe, the 888 # is to the shipboard satellite phone. If there was an emergency at home- the crew can reach you this way. Whoever is calling just needs to know your stateroom #. I do imagine that you will be billed for these calls on your room charges- so I would make sure your employer is willing to reimburse you for these hefty fees if you need to be contacted that badly.

Same if you use you work or personal cell phone when we are in a port. Expensive, but if they need you, they need to pay!

An internet package isn't cheap but if you pay for a package you can sign in long enough to check emails. Also for my cell phone I can use a text message package. My carrier has an add on where I can pay .20 a text. I find it to be my cheapest method of staying in touch.

The number for people to call the ship and leave a voicemail on your stateroom phone is 1-888-322-8732, but they have to use a credit card to connect to it and i believe its about $7.00 per min on their card, but they can get a message to you, otherwise, you would have to leave your cell one if you want a direct call which may incur roaming fees and internet fees if a smart phone, or you can buy an internet package and check your email on the ship. hope this helps.

I would suggest texts. They're much more affordable than voice conversations. Your cell phone is much cheaper per minute than the ships satelite phone.

I was thinking that was a possibility...it seems that the cell phone should still work on board, but with roaming charges. It's a company phone paid up for the next month...depending on what happens, I probably don't care much about those charges

Are we allowed to bring a corkscrew on boards or is that considered a weapon? I actually want it more for our post-stay than on board but I don't want to break any rules.
What about a small pair of children's scissors? Is that ok?
This is our 1st cruise and I'm not 100% clear on the rules. We fly a few times a year so I have the TSA rules for carry-on bags pretty straight but this is all new to me!

Thanks!

Amanda

PS I'm having a super busy week at work combined with pre-vacation angst which is making me crazier than usual. I may ask lots of questions in the next 48 hours or so.... Hopefully not everyone with KNOWLEDGE has already gone to Disney.

I don't know the answer (although you seem to have gotten good advice) but I just wanted to say I'm sorry! I'm used to answering work phone calls and emails from vacation and I already tried to warn the relevant people that I really won't be available this time. It's both weird and refreshing. So I do understand a bit about staying in touch with work. I hope things ease up and you're able to relax and enjoy your trip!

You can pack both in your checked luggage without a problem.

Ask away- we have a couple more days!
